What you need to know

  • Google Photos has gained a handy update to its action button interface.
  • You can now access all of its action buttons when selecting a photo or video without having to open a file.
  • The latest change appears to be rolling out as part of a server-side update.

Google Photos’ action buttons are now a lot easier to find, thanks to a new UI change that introduces a pop-up menu at the bottom, where you can view all options for sharing and managing your files.

Google Photos now shows a card at the bottom of the screen when you click any photo or video in the Photos tab (via 9to5Google (opens in new tab)). It gives you access to all of its action buttons, some of which were previously tucked away within the three-dot menu. These include the buttons for sharing, adding to a library, deleting an item, ordering a print, moving a file to archive or Locked Folder, and editing the location.
